A car plowed straight into a Delaware beauty salon, and police are now praising the business owner for helping everyone get out safely.

Three employees and two customers were inside the Naturally Beautiful Salon at Ashley Plaza in Middletown on Tuesday when that vehicle came through the front of the store.

Salon owner Nikki Washington warned everyone to exit toward the back of the building, and then she went back inside to get the driver out.

Thanks to her quick actions, police say not a single person was hurt.

The driver, who accidentally stepped on the gas instead of the brake, did receive a citation for inattentive driving.
